``College Physics'' by Etkina, Gentile and Van Heuvelen to be published by Pearson in June of 2013 answers this question by integrating the philosophy of the Investigative Science Learning Environment (ISLE) into a textbook, supplemented by the revised Physics Active Learning Guide (ALG). ISLE is a philosophy of teaching physics in which student learning mirrors the doing of physics. In addition to making the process of physics the heart of the book, College Physics is rich with multiple representations, innovative applications of simple physics principles to exciting phenomena, and a variety of problem types that encourage student thinking and help develop real world problem solving abilities. The Instructor Guide helps the teacher navigate through the materials and discusses common students' ideas, difficulties, and strengths. The textbook, the ALG and the IG can be used in college physics courses, high school courses (in fact they perfectly match the revised AP physics courses), and methods courses for prospective and in-service physics teachers.
